Question Dog issues

OK, this is gross, but I'm a little worried. I have a female pit about 7 months old who we have had for a little over two months now. She got spayed last week and she has a soft bump around the incision. She is playing and happy as always, but I'm worried about possible infection...no other symptoms though. Also, she has diarrhea...had it almost since day one and hasn't gone away. Could it be the food? She has had her stool tested (and it was fine), I switched her diet for a week to rice and cottage cheese, switched her back (we use Eagle Pack Natural Formula for Adult Dogs), then she got spayed and still runny....what should I do?!?

That isn't gross really....

call your vet. tell him.... diarrhea isn't good... and i don't think cottage cheese and rice is that good of a diet either... but call your vet.

the general rule is if the dog has diahrea for more than 3 days to contact a vet, a dog can get dehydrated very quickly...and if you see redness or anything that concerns you around her incision then you should call the vet just to be on the safe side...poor sweety, I hope she gets better soon. and anout food, any time there is a change in the diet they tend to have stomach issues and diahrea...sometimes you have to try a few different foods over a period of time till you find one that is ok with the dog, my dogs went through 3 seperate brands before finding one that was good on all 4 stomachs lol
